    BOOK REVIEW: Landline by Rainbow Rowell

    At the time of writing this I have read all Rainbow Rowell books minus Carry On. I’ve enjoyed every single one including this one. From what I’ve read in other reviews it seems a lot of people are upset that Neil isn’t perfect. This book has an interesting plot which includes time travel and second chances. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars was because some parts got annoyingly repetitive. Outside of that it made me laugh and cry. I read this with my husband and we both enjoyed it. It also helped remind me how much I love him. Be sure to watch the video above to hear more on why I loved Landline.

    BOOK REVIEW: Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

    Eleanor & Park is another great book by Rainbow Rowell. I’ll probably be reviewing all of her books cause they’re just that awesome. But don’t worry, I’ll squeeze in some other books in between.

    Eleanor & Park takes place in the 80’s. If you’re as old as I am you’ll really enjoy the pop culture references. I think it’s something Rowell does really well.

    “I love you,” he said.

    She looked up at him, her eyes shiny and black, then looked away. “I know,” she said.

    He pulled one of his arms out from under her and traced her outline against the couch. He could spend all day like this, running his hand down her ribs, into her waist, out to her hips and back again…. If he had all day, he would. If she weren’t made of so many other miracles.

    “You know?” he repeated. She smiled, so he kissed her. “You’re not the Han Solo in this relationship, you know.”

    “I’m totally the Han Solo,” she whispered. It was good to hear her. It was good to remember it was Eleanor under all this new flesh.

    “Well, I’m not the Princess Leia,” he said.

    “Don’t get so hung up on gender roles,” Eleanor said.”


    I read the audio book but had to purchase Eleanor & Park for my teenage son shortly afterwards.
